Shraddha Murder Case LIVE Updates: Second session of polygraph test on Aaftab Poonawala begins
The test could not be conducted on Wednesday as the 28-year-old was down with a fever and cold, they said.
An official from FSL said, “He has been brought by the police here and the process of polygraph test has started.”
The delay in the completion of the test has also put off Poonawala’s narco test.
The Polygraph test records physiological phenomena such as blood pressure, pulse rate and respiration, and the data is used to determine whether the person is speaking the truth.
The narco analysis, on the other hand, involves administering the individual medication which reduces their self-consciousness and allows them to speak freely.
